REpower concludes contract for 150 MW project in Oklahoma (USA)
73 MM92 wind turbines with Hot Climate Option / Delivery and installation scheduled for the second half of 2012
The wind turbines each have a rated output of 2.05 MW, a rotor diameter of 92 metres and a hub height of 80 metres. Due to the climatic conditions the turbines are equipped with the Hot Climate Option (HCO), which eases operation during the dry, hot summer months in that region of the country. The delivery and initial operation of the turbines is planned for the third and fourth quarters of 2012.

In addition, I wish to thank the team of Suzlon Wind Energy Corporation for the support they provided during the negotiation process."
